Publisher's Summary

If you're not daring to believe God for the impossible, you may be sleeping through some of the best parts of your Christian Life.

This book is not a Snuggie. The words on these pages will not go down like Ambien. I’m not writing to calm or coddle you. With God’s help, I intend to incite a riot in your mind. Trip your breakers and turn out the lights in your favorite hiding places of insecurity and fear. Then flip the switch back on so that God’s truth can illuminate the divine destiny that may have been lying dormant inside you for years.

In short, I’m out to activate your audacious faith. To inspire you to ask God for the impossible. And in the process, to reconnect you with your God-sized purpose and potential.

Critic Reviews

“Steven Furtick challenges all of us—from the missionary in the third world to the family in the suburbs—to believe God for the impossible and begin living a life of faith beyond the ordinary.” (Andy Stanley, senior pastor, North Point Community Church)
“I don’t know anyone better positioned to challenge you to rise above mundane living and embrace faith-filled audacity than Steven Furtick.” (Craig Groeschel, senior pastor, LifeChurch.tv)
“For too long Christians have embraced a miniscule vision of faith.… Steven Furtick reminds us that the God who accomplished the impossible through the great heroes of faith still desires to do the same through us today.” (Jentezen Franklin, senior pastor, Free Chapel)

Great! Inspirational! Moving!

What did you love best about Sun Stand Still?

It reminded me that that God wants us to have great life. Not the ordinary 9 to 5; waiting to retire at 62 life. It's not an easy thing to live an extraordinary and fulfilled life, and God is with us but we must have an audacious faith.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Joshua

What does Steven Furtick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

It moved me to go after my big dreams!

If you want to Grow its a must read

What about Steven Furtick’s performance did you like?

There is nothing like hearing the passion in the authors voice.

What did you learn from Sun Stand Still that you would use in your daily life?

Faith is made for overcoming fear. Prayer is for stiring faith.

Any additional comments?

This book was inspiring and challenging. I will never see pryer as a vague religous duty again.Thank You Steven Furtick for being obedient and writting this God inspired work. It spoke directly to where I was and help me to climb to the next level of faith.

Milk and Honey

I was predisposed to love this book, primarily because over the years, Joshua's life and his battles have impacted me. It isn't so much the battles that I enjoy; primarily I'm awed by his faith. When I listened to this persons account of their life; speaking about how their faith opened doors; in the telling of the story, he too experienced 'Sun Stand Still' miracles. Yet, I didn't have the same degree of awe as I'd experienced when reading about Joshua's accounts. I suppose I wanted to hear more. Perhaps, I needed fuller descriptions. But, all in all; I cannot deny that, in his life he too experienced God's miracle working power.

Very Good

Thought this was a great book. Read lots of reviews on other sites before i bought it. The people with the bad reviews seem to be people looking for anything to be negative about. Listened to the whole book and really have nothing bad to say about. Very good listen!!!

Audacious!

I haven't read a lot of Christian books but of the few that I have read this definitely is by far my favorite. In this book, Pastor Steven, gives the tools we need to have that audacious faith most Christians seek to have. If you allow it, this book will revolutionize the way you pray and teach you how to pray without fear. Since he's the narrator it give it the personal touch to the book which truly made a difference. It was like he was preaching only to me.

Pray Boldly

Encouraged me to pray boldly with audacious faith! I thought it was awesome that it was narrated by Pastor Steven Furtick himself.

Strategic.

It is an awesome read. It compels you to move forward and not accept or do the basic. The mundane things we do is unacceptable. To win for Christ and do for the kingdom, you must push past the limits. Especially the ones we have been so comfortable with. We have to do it in prayer.

Honest!

What did you love best about Sun Stand Still?

I love the honesty Stephen Furtick has when he talks about anything and it still is true with his book.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Furtick talks about himself, his family, and many other people with different circumstances within this book. I can't choose a favorite but I like that his accountant guy is named Chunks. Then there is a man he mentions (I forgot his nickname) that was brought to Christ, then sent to jail. Furtick was worried about him and the man seemed happy that he could go to jail for the time he had to pay for crimes he committed so he could start a revival of Christ in the jailhouse.

Which scene was your favorite?

Probably when Stephen talks about him in college and inviting everyone on his floor to come and eat his food, how quickly he ran out of food and how he had to keep up with this plan. His determination is fun and funny.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes, I listened to it in two parts so I practically did listen to it in one sitting.

Any additional comments?

Stephen Furtick has a way of telling a story that puts you in his shoes so you experience it with him. He doesn't stand in front of you preaching at you or behind you, he's with you.

Some Reviewers Must Not Have Read This Book

This work has been characterized by some bloggers as a book that promotes "Name It/Claim It" doctrine. I did not find anything to support such allegations. In fact Furtick goes to great lengths to challenge readers to pray audacious prayers, not for their own benefit, but to glorify God. Some reviews were so far off base I wonder if they read any of the book at all. Very little of the book will make sense to someone who does not believe the Bible.
